Letter: Eating in the street is asking for trouble
Reading the letters and articles in The Scarborough News recently, it appears that the majority of seagull attacks are on people eating in the street. Surely a simple way to avoid attacks is not to eat in the street.
Myself and my other half, Janice, were victims of a gull attack alongside Whitby Harbour. Janice was taking a pizza slice lunch when a gull swooped and took the slice in one swoop - with such force that the downward draught from its wings partially dislodged my glasses.
Letter: The council can act to protect people over gull problem
I would like to pass on my thanks to Kevin Hollinrake MP for ascertaining the government’s view on whether a seagull cull would be allowed as published in last week’s Scarborough News. His intervention followed my passing on complaints from a Hunmanby resident who expressed concerns about the state of Huntriss Row in Scarborough. I would also like to thank Cllr Bill Chatt for being willing to listen when I forwarded on the complaint. For the record, her complaint pre-dated your newspaper articles calling for action on these matters.
